Definite foreign flavor in UConn's bracket

It was hard to overlook the large number of foreign players while looking at the rosters of the three other teams in the Storrs subregional.

Robert Morris, which will play UConn in the first round on Saturday, features eight players from other countries while Duquesne, a potential second-round foe has seven.

I did the math and the 16 foreign players on the rosters of the four teams playing in Storrs is second only to the 19 in the UCLA subregional. Overall when you look at the four brackets, the Bridgeport regional has 42 players from outside of the United States is easily the most of the four regionals. The Sioux Falls bracket is second with 24 followed by Dallas (20) and Lexington (19).

Here's the list of NCAA tournament teams with the most foreign players
9 Colorado State (Bridgeport)
8 Robert Morris (Bridgeport)
7 Buffalo (Sioux Falls)
7 Duquesne (Bridgeport)
7 San Francisco (Lexington)
7 South Florida (Bridgeport)
6 Albany (Sioux Falls)
6 Idaho (Dallas)

Most foreign players per subregional site
19 Los Angeles (Bridgeport)
16 Storrs (Bridgeport)
11 Palo Alto (Lexington)
10 Syracuse (Sioux Falls)
10 Waco (Dallas)
